DSM Polymerization Plant to Be Built in Augusta, USA

Royal DSM, the global Life Sciences and Materials Sciences company, today announces that its new polymerization plant will be built in Augusta, Georgia, USA. The investment was accounted earlier this year and now a location has been confirmed. The plant, which will become part of DSM's Engineering Plastics business group, will manufacture high viscous Akulon polyamide 6 polymer for film grades used in flexible food packaging and other segments.

The new plant will be built next to DSM Engineering Plastics’ existing world class facility in Augusta, GA that currently manufactures medium viscous grades of Akulon and Novamid polyamide 6 polymers for a wide variety of components used in the electrical & electronics, automotive, and consumer goods industries.

The new plant will be DSM’s first polymerization plant for high viscosity grades in North America for Akulon polyamide 6 and is an extension of DSM’s strong commitment to both their global and North American customers. Construction of the plant is scheduled to start in Q1 2015 with completion targeted for mid-2016.
